Re: Chicago-Pizza and Riesling (and Piedmont)-November 19th (Coalfire)

I didn't take any formal notes, but in my opinion the drier Rieslings paired the best with the pizza, with the star being the Schafer-Frohlich GG. But several in the group felt that the sweet wines paired best, with the best being the Fritz Haag. It was great to see the differences in wines and opin...

Re: Chicago-Pizza and Riesling (and Piedmont)-November 19th (Coalfire)

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for coming, sharing some great wines, and making it a fun night!
Special thanks to Adam for setting it up and hooking up the great pizza (and meatballs)!

Hope to get another dinner together soon.

Cheers!
Patrick

Re: Chicago-Pizza and Riesling (and Piedmont)-November 19th (Coalfire)

Sounds great, Adam!

By the sounds of it, we need some racy, high acid dry Riesling to fill this party out. I am bringing a bottle of 2014 Schafer-Frohlich Monzinger Halenberg GG and a 2018 Weiser-Kunstler Trabener Gaispfad Kabinett Trocken.

I will bring my own stems too.

Sounds like this is coming together nicely! I am in!
Still trying to decide on wines. I'd like to see what others are bringing to see if there is a style that needs representation. But thinking about a Schafer-Frohlich GG and also something sweeter. Will decide and post.

Re: Chicago-Pizza and Reisling-November 19th (Coalfire)

I have this pairing a lot and absolutely love it! I have had anything from bone dry to Spatlese. I tend to be drawn more to a Feinherb or Kabinett level as the best pairings, but love the idea of a side by side tasting to see which types pair the best. I think the interplay between acidity and sweet...

Re: Chicago Nov 4th (Monday)

Thank you all for the welcome.

I was thinking that a Burgundy night would be interesting, as I am very much a novice on the region and interested in learning more. But, Champagne is a favorite of mine and always a good time.

For what it's worth - Piedmont and Germany are my strong suits.
